In this article you will know (1) Ideology and Communal Violence Conducted by RSS (2) How RSS uses its ‘charitable NGOs’ to raise money from Westerners during the time of natural calamities and use it against Christians in India. (3) These same NGOs are now raising money for Bihar Flood Relief. After reading this article, please (1) send this to all fair-minded Hindu friends so that they who denounce Islamic terrorism will denounce RSS too (2) Send to all the friends especially in US and Europe so that they are aware of these NGOs who fund RSS.

“We do not think it is a coincidence that the two Indian states where Hindutva networks, hatred and violence have grown phenomenally in recent years both had natural and human tragedies (the Gujarat earthquake in 2001, the Orissa cyclone in 1999) followed by massive amounts of funding to Hindutva organizations under the guise of humanitarian charity.” Awaaz — South Asia Watch Ltd
If the two studies by (1) Sabrang Communications & Publishing Pvt. Ltd, Mumbai, India, and The South Asia Citizens Web and (2) Awaaz — South Asia Watch Ltd is anything to go by, a new disturbing pattern of RSS terrorist tactics is being revealed. In the time of natural calmatives like cyclone (as was in Orissa) and Earth Quake (as was in Gujarat), RSS raises funds from general public in the Europe and in the US (probably in other countries also) through its subsidiary organizations registered under different names as charity organizations in these countries eligible for tax exemption too and then uses the money given for humanitarian cause to create its network and kill minorities.
- Real Face of RSS
While the terrorist nature of its ideology, often masqueraded under the Hindu Nationalism for a wider appeal among unsuspecting Hindus, can be equaled to Islamic terrorism ( see Table 2), RSS actions also clarifies any doubt its true nature.
· RSS has been involved in communal riot murdering of at least 5000 Indians (as indicted by various commissions) since 1960s. This is apart from its regular killing of Christians (where most often there is no riot as Christians are peaceful), murdering of its political enemies (such as in Kannur, Kerala where there is fight going on between RSS and Communist, and raping minority women. This also excludes the number of people whom RSS persecuted by beating, wounding and making them homeless
· It has been thrice banned in Independent India twice for spreading violence and hatred
· It has been indicted by 8 Independent Commissions in India for communal violence (see the table below):
|Table 1 : RSS Indicted for Communal Violence|
|Location/Date||Estimated number of killed, where known||Sangh Parivar Indicted by|
Justice D.P. Madon Commission: ‘The organization responsible for bringing communal tension in Bhiwandi to a pitch is the Rashtriya Utsa
v Mandal [an arm of the Jana Sangh, the then RSS political wing].’
|Jalgaon 1970||43||Justice D. P. Madon Commission, as above.|
Justice Joseph Vithyathil Commission:
‘It was only after the RSS and the Jana Sangh set up their units … that there came a change in the situation. Their anti-Muslim propaganda, its reaction on the Muslims … and the communal tension that followed prepared the ground for the disturbances.’
Commission of Inquiry:
‘The dispute on the route of the procession became sharp and agitated reactions from a group of persons … who systematically distributed pamphlets to heighten communal feelings and had organizational links with the RSS.’
|Kanyakumari 1982||Justice Venugopal Commission: ‘The RSS methodology for provoking communal violence is: a) rousing feelings in the majority community by propaganda… b) deepening fear in the majority community by a clever propaganda that the [minorities’] population is increasing… c) infiltrating into the administration… e) spreading rumours to widen the communal cleavage…’|
|Bhagalpur 1989||At least 918||Commission of Inquiry, Majority Report of Justice Ram Chand Prasad and S. Shamshul Hasan:
‘The climax was reached when the BJP and VHP (Vishwa Hindu Parishad) workers led by their leaders demonstrated…’
|East Delhi 1992||19||People’s Union for Civil Liberties:
‘The December 11 incidents… [were] a vicious police operation carried out with communal bias, with so-called Hindutva activists and local [thugs] with a view to unleash terror on members of the minority community.’
|Bombay 1992 – 1993||At least
|Human Rights Watch:
‘The violence in Bombay emerged out of an organized and systematic ideological campaign directed primarily against India's Muslim minority… During the preceding months, a movement … including the BJP, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP) and Shiv Sena, had called for the construction of a temple on the site of the [Babri] mosque as an integral move in their struggle for Hindutva, or Hindu rule.’
Concerned Citizens’ Tribunal (chaired by former Chief Justice of India V.R. Krishna Iyer):
‘The leadership of large mobs running into thousands was provided by easily identifiable elected representatives of the BJP (including cabinet ministers), and others from the VHP, the Bajrang Dal and the RSS…’
Following are a few Comparisons between RSS Ideology and Islamic TerrorismNote:
They are many similarities between RSS and Islamic terrorism with the difference that RSS is national and the Islamic terrorism is international. This list is not exhaustive. It is shown so that fair minded Hindus may open their eyes and start disassociating from RSS. Otherwise they too will become hypocrites in condemning only the Islamic terrorism while condoning the RSS terrorism.
|#||Islamic Terrorism||RSS Ideology|
|Gives paramilitary training||Gives paramilitary training
(If they are such nationalists, then they should join Indian Army or Police rather than having a separate paramilitary force. This shows the violent nature of RSS).
|Non Muslims can convert to Islam but a Muslim leaving Islam is a traitor and should be killed.
But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail our revelations for a people who have knowledge. And if they break their pledges after their treaty (hath been made with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief — Lo! they have no binding oaths in order that they may desist.
Sahih Bukhari 4:52:260Narrated Ikrima: Ali burnt some people and this news reached Ibn 'Abbas, who said, "Had I been in his place I would not have burnt them, as the Prophet said, 'Don't punish (anybody) with Allah's Punishment.' No doubt, I would have killed them, for the Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' " (See the Dr. Zakir Naik saying this http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2355640483472559724
|Non Hindus can convert to Hinduism but Hindus leaving Hinduism is a traitor (for proof see the next comparison). For example, RSS does not have problem with ISKCON, Ramakrishna Mission or other Hindu organizations converting non-Hindus to Hinduism.It violently opposes Hindus converting to any other religion.|
|Non Muslims must be treated as dhimmis (expecting no rights as citizens). Sahih Muslim 26:5389, See Also Sahih Muslim 26:5390, Abu Dawud 41:5186 Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you and when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.||Non Hindus must not expect any rights as citizens.
We or Our Nationhood Defined, Golwalkar, 1939, pp. 47-48
The foreign races in Hindusthan [India] must either adopt the Hindu culture and language, must learn to respect and hold in reverence Hindu religion, must entertain no idea but those of the glorification of the Hindu race and culture, i.e., of the Hindu nation and must loose (sic) their separate existence to merge in the Hindu race, or may stay in the country, wholly subordinated to the Hindu Nation, claiming nothing, deserving no privileges, far less any preferential treatment — not even citizen's rights. There is, at least, should be, no other course for them to adopt. We are an old nation; let us deal, as old nations ought to and do deal, with the foreign races, who have chosen to live in our country.”
Muslims first claim victimhood before they start violence when in actuality there is no victimization From ‘Understanding Muhammad: A Pshychobiography’ by Ali Sina (Page 19) “Muhammad claimed victimhood, when in reality he was the victimizer. Muslims do the same. Everywhere it is Muslims who are killing, oppressing and persecuting, and yet they are the ones who cry loudest claiming to be victims and oppressed”
RSS creates a victimized feeling first through its propaganda and then starts the violence Justice Venugopal Commission: ‘The RSS methodology for provoking communal violence is: a) rousing feelings in the majority community by propaganda… b) deepening fear in the majority community by a clever propaganda that the [minorities’] population is increasing… c) infiltrating into the administration… e) spreading rumours to widen the communal cleavage…’

- RSS and Foreign Funds
After understanding the true face of RSS, now we must look at how they raise funds.
- In America: India Development and Relief Fund (IDRF)
In America, RSS collects its fund through a ‘charitable’ organization called as India Development and Relief Fund. Sabrang Communications & Publishing Pvt. Ltd, Mumbai, India, and The South Asia Citizens Web notes:
The IDRF (India Development and Relief Fund) was set up as a tax-exempt, non-profit organization in 1989 under the provisions of section 501(c)(3) of the tax code. Its official, self-stated purpose is to raise money for organizations in India “assisting in rural development, tribal welfare, and urban poor.” According to its tax filings, the IDRF raised $ 3.8 million in the year 2000, of which it disbursed $1.7 million in ‘relief and development work.
However, this is how they have spent their money. “Nearly 70% of the IDRF funds go to organizations dealing with education (largely in adivasi/rural areas), hostels, 'shuddhi'/reconversion programs, and Hinduization efforts; about 8% goes for health and welfare work; 15% goes for relief work, and only 4% towards what is normally understood in the NGO world as rural development.”For example, one of its beneficiaries was The Vanvasi Kalyan Parishad of Swami Ashim Anand.
This same Swami Ashim Anand was identified as the main person behind forcible reconversion of Christians by the US State Department Report on International Religious Freedom. (Sources: http://www.state.gov/www/global/human_rights/irf/irf_rpt/1999/irf_india99.html and http://stopfundinghate.org/sacw/part4.html).
For the complete report on this visit The Foreign Exchange of Hate: IDRF and the American Funding of Hindutva.
- In Europe: Sewa International UK (SIUK) and , Kalyan Ashram Trust (KAT, a registered charity, charity number 261327).
SIUK raised around £2.3 million for its India Quake Appeal from the UK public, though it also claimed to have raised £4.3 million in 2001. Awaaz — South Asia Watch Ltd notes: “ A document we obtained from sources in Gujarat shows how approximately £1.9 million raised by SIUK was to be used by Sewa Bharati in Gujarat. We also have grounds for believing that all of the approximately £2.3 million raised by SIUK during its India Quake Appeal was for Sewa Bharati, an RSS organization.” (Source: http://www.awaazsaw.org/ibf/section2.htm)
After receiving the foreign money, RSS chased out Christian NGOs accusing them of receiving foreign money.
"RSS does not want any organization from outside to come and carry out any relief work in Kutch. It does not want any NGO that received foreign funds to work in Kutch. It has decided to send all the NGOs out of Kutch within 15 days resorting to physical vi
olence if they do not leave the place voluntarily. RSS has already begun using violence. In Adhoi, Kotada and Ratnal villages where Gantar [an NGO] is doing relief work, RSS workers (a large crowd of 2000 or more) went and threatened the volunteers…RSS accuses NGOs of receiving foreign funds [for] converting people to Christian religion" (http://www.ambedkar.org/News/RSSCreating.htm.)
Similar is the story of Orissa too. For the full report read http://www.awaazsaw.org/ibf/index.htm
- IDRF and Sewa International UK is collecting money for Bihar Flood Relief!!!
IDRF has collected money for Tsunami and is now collecting money for Bihar flood relief (http://www.idrf.org/dynamic/modules.php?name=Hnnews&file=article&sid=194).
Similarly Sewa International UK is also collecting money now for Bihar flood relief (http://www.sewainternational.com/)
We Must Pray and We Must Act. We Must Pray and Act NOW and Stop these NGOs from funding RSS which in turn uses this money to kill and persecute Christians.
